Episode 7: Richard Deitsch, Sports Illustrated


A pretty big week of podcasting for me culminates with Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch.

Topics covered:

– The Skip Bayless LeBron-mocking Tweets resulting in Undisputed vs Paw Patrol, Scooby Doo, Columbo, etc.

— a quick aside on the “influencer of the influencer” model of public relations

— reactions to the “Nobody reads anything over 1,000 words” tweet

— reactions to the writers laid off at Fox Sports and what it means for Fox Sports going forward

— availability of podcasts for studio shows and how they impact linear TV viewership

— what happens to PTI a few years down the road?

— reactions to Jim Miller’s comments on Richard’s podcast from Wednesday, June 28 where he said he didn’t believe that the format/philosophy for SC6 will be the same a year from now

— predictions for Mike Greenberg’s upcoming show

— predictions for the new Chris Carter & Nick Wright show as lead-in for Undisputed and FS1 in general

— NFL ratings predictions

— how will it go for Tony Romo early in the season?

— Outtake: I wondered if Alexa would cut Deitsch some slack if *he* asked for his own podcast (spoiler: nope)
